Why Winter Is a Good Time To Sell

Here are three reasons why winter is an amazing time to sell your home.

Is winter a good time to list your home for sale? I get asked this question quite

a bit this time of year. Luckily for you, the answer is always yes; the winter

months are a wonderful time to sell. We typically sell a lot of homes during the frosty months, and here are a few reasons why:

1. Less inventory. In the winter, our market has much less inventory than during the spring, which is fantastic for sellers because low inventory means less competition. You’ll close closer to your list price and more buyers will be interested in your home. 

2. Serious buyers. Buyers tend to be more serious in the winter. I always say that if they’re going out into the cold, they’re serious about buying. Plenty of people don’t want to move in the winter, but there are multiple reasons why a move may be needed such as a divorce, a marriage, a baby, or they’ve finally saved enough money to buy a house. You’ll have fewer showings with more motivated buyers.

"The winter months are a wonderful time to sell."

3. Relocators. Numerous companies relocate employees in January or at least begin the relocation process. That’s a large wave of people needing to buy during the winter season. 

All these reasons and many more are why you should consider taking

advantage of the real estate market in the winter. As always, if you have any questions about selling or real estate in general, we are here to be of service. Don’t hesitate to call or email us. We would love to help you.
